Just out of the blue I decided to make pork floss mini puffs on that day. The reason was because I wanted to test out this agaration puff pastry that failed on me when I made my curry puffs few months ago. I used to make a good one 10+ years back and I refused to believe I couldn't get it right again. I used to make lots of pork floss mini puffs and pleated it by hands (no child at that time) and baked it in the oven. It was really a tasty treat and a healthier version . Being stubborn, I just had to try it again. Alas! I failed again! I am not happy with the texture of the puff (better than the first though), but "bolek makan lah" (edible). I only made about 20 pieces and it were all gone the same night. BUT, I wanted it to look like those sold at the pasar malam (night market) you know. *sigh*
Guess I just couldn't recall anymore and have to resort into following a recipe instead of agar-agar myself. The ingredient I remember was simple, it has butter, flour, salt and water. But I just couldn't remember how much to agar-agar anymore (the butter and water part). :0(

I was just playing or experimenting with my cookies. Instead of the vanilla extract, I used almond extract instead. The cookies turned out great, just as yummy. Guess this is a short-cut way for those of us who don't have ground almond on hands. I saw one sugi cookie recipe that uses ground almond, so I experiment with almond extract. I wonder why they called it sugi cookie instead of almond cookie when ground almond is used? Any idea?

This is her at exactly 3 months!
Finally, I managed to catch her smiling or laughing?
I have been searching for a sauce recipe for my Yong Tau Foo and so glad to find it at Rasa Malaysia. I just had to try it since I have all the ingredients at home.
I marinated my fish meat emulsion with just white peppers and sesame oil and stuffed it in fresh white mushrooms, okras and small taufu poks.
Her yellow bean sauce is simply delicious, perfect for the yong tau foo. I definitely going to make this sauce again and again. Yummilicious!!
Thanks Rasa Malaysia! :D

I decided to try another recipe for my CNY cookies collection, Sugi Cookies because of its' simplicity. This cookie is delicious, it's crunchy when you bite into it and then simply melt-in-the-mouth.

Finally I made Jo's peanut cookies that I have been eyeing since last year! The original recipe can be found at IK (under cookies/biscuit section). I only did 1/4 of the recipe because I only have 80g of ground peanuts at home. So, I testing out this recipe earlier preparing for the CNY ahead.

Traditional Green Bean Casserole (recipe found on web)I actually cooked some fried rice this afternoon for his lunch box the next day (since I know he won't want a western meal lunch box) , nothing special just a simply "hamtam" what's in the fridge fried rice and his comment when he saw the lunch box was, "Wow, got fried rice to eat, yummy!". He would prefer white rice and simple eggs with chai por over the above anytime. Another of his favorite is pan-fried luncheon meat and fried eggs with white rice! Very chinese right? Anyone hubby is like that?

It's so hard to take picture of my two precious daughters together. Evy wants to join in whenever I try to snap some pictures of Edda (which I have not been doing it often enough), so I would have to accomodate her in the pictures as well.
Oh mine, look at Edda's spiky hair! Evy's hair was not like that before, guess it will fall down when it gets longer, if she hasn't turned "botak" (bold) already. She started losing her hair at 2 1/2 months and still losing. If she is like Evy, she will become almost bold around 6-7 months and then her hair will start to grow back.
Edda is 3 months old today! She is such a happy baby. She will smile to everyone who talks to her. Guess a chocolate a day while pregnant and remain stress free during the whole pregnancy really produces a happy baby. ^o^
